Musharraf

vows comeback

KRISTY VICKERY
GUEST REPORTER

A standing crowd of 300
broke into cheers Saturday
night for a man many
believe can bring new hope
and change to a tumultuous
Pakistan beset with exten-
sive political and tribal
hardships.
Pervez Musharraf, the
former Pakistani president,
was about to announce his
bid for re-election more
than 7,000 miles from
Karachi.
Despite the distance
from his nation's capital,
Musharraf was greeted like
a true celebrity in a packed
ballroom at the Westin
Hotel in Lake Mary. The
event, hosted by the Florida
Chapter Friends of Pakistan
First, was to advocate for
Musharraf's All Pakistan
Muslim League, which was
launched in June, in hope
of bringing support for his
political comeback.
Florida was just one of
the stops along Musharrafs
U.S. visit to spread his mis-
sion, and rally support from
the local community for the
2013 Pakistani Presidential
elections.
"My objective should be
the next elections, and I

Congresswoman-elect Sandy Adams thanks supporters after learning of her victory in her race against Suzanne Kosmas.

Republicans took key races, while local amendments changed the landscape


JENNY ANDREASSON,
MEGAN STOKES
AND ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE
Swept along with the tide of
anti-incumbent sentiment,
District 24 Rep. Suzanne
Kosmas lost her seat to
State Rep. Sandy Adams on
Tuesday night.
Adams took 59 percent
of the vote.
Republicans across
the state and the nation
captured seats, including
Marco Rubio in the U.S.
Senate race, Rick Scott in
the governor race and Dan
Webster in the U.S. House
District 8 race.
Adams, who lives in
Oviedo, thanked her sup-


porters, who gathered
at the Sheraton Orlando
Downtown to watch the
election results pour in.
"I really am honored and
humbled, and I promise
I will really listen to each
and every one of you," she
said.
Kosmas raised more
than double what Adams
raised during the campaign
- $2.4 million to Adams'
$840,000, according to pre-
election reports. But the
lack of funds didn't weaken
her campaign.
"It was a grassroots
campaign and our mes-
sage resonated," she said.
"Washington is broken. The
voters of District 24 have


supported our vision... of a
more streamlined govern-
ment."
Adams said the big-
gest issue right now as she
starts her term in Congress
is the Obama health care
plan. She supports lower-
ing health care premiums
for families and small busi-
nesses, increasing access
to affordable, high-qual-
ity care, and promoting
healthier lifestyles - with-
out new taxes or adding to
the national debt.
"Health care is a big issue,
taxes, the regulations, all of
that."
Adams has served in
the Florida House of
Representatives, represent-


ing District 33, since 2002.
Before that, she spent 17
years as a deputy sheriff for
the Orange County Sheriffs
Office. She is also an Air
Force veteran.

History of a district
District 24 leans
Republican. State legisla-
tors drew it after the 2000
Census, reportedly to
ensure then-House speaker
Tom Feeney an easy win.
Feeney held the seat
from 2002 until 2008, when
Kosmas, a former state rep-
resentative, captured the
seat by about 16 percentage
points, amid Democratic

Recount for deadlocked election


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE
Tuesday night was a ner-
vous time for seven Oviedo
City Council candidates.
But for two, it was partic-
ularly tense. Three hours
after the polls had closed,
when the smaller munici-


pal elections are typically
long since decided, candi-
dates Cindy Drago and Paul
Sladek were knotted with-
in 14 votes of each other.
More than 10,000 votes
had been cast.
As of press time, a
recount was almost assured
for the race for Oviedo


City Council Group 4, with
Drago's 2,497 votes, or
24.70 percent, narrowly
edging Sladek's 2,483, or
24.56 percent, well within
the half-percent manda-
tory recount margin of the
total 10,111 votes cast.
"Even with the [provi-
sional ballots], if the lead


doesn't change signifi-
cantly in any way, they may
have to recount the ballots
by hand," Mayor Dominic
Persampiere said. The
candidates were fighting
for Persampiere's vacated
Council seat.

THIS WEEK in history


I ia man off a dirt ramp and over a police car. The jump totaled the car
but secured it a place in television history. The jump can be seen
during the opening credits of "The Dukes of Hazzard". (More than
. 300 General Lees appeared during the series' run).


ELECTION I Oviedo reverts to old system, taking power away from mayor's seat


< continued from the front page

Party resurgence and ethi-
cal questions surrounding
his golf junket.
In October, District 24,
which includes parts of
Brevard, Orange, Seminole
and Volusia counties, was
39.7 percent Republican,
36.8 percent Democrat and
23.5 percent other or no
party affiliation.

Local elections
Republican Congressman
John Mica successfully
defended his seat against
Democrat Heather Beaven,
by a 70.59 percent to 29.41
percent margin.
Republicans Jason
Brodeur and Chris
Dorworth both won bids
for re-election in respective
state legislative districts
33 and 34. Brodeur gained
60.47 percent of the vote,
while Dorworth won with a
narrow 52.46 percent mar-
gin.
Sanford Mayor Linda
Kuhn was cleared of elec-
tion law violations on the
day of the election, but that
may not have been soon
enough for her to keep her
seat. The first-term mayor
lost to challenger Jeff
Triplett by a 56 percent to
44 percent margin.
Challenging for the
Sanford Commission
District 1 seat, contractor
Mark McCarty won with 56
percent to Hank Dieckhaus'
44 percent.
Fred Schott won his sec-
ond official bid for judge,
winning a county court
judge seat by a 51.39 per-
cent to 48.61 percent mar-
gin over Debra Krause.
In the CircuitJudge Group
3 seat, Jessica Recksiedler
won by a 67.41 percent to
32.59 percent margin over
Oscar Hotusing.
For the Seminole County
School Board's District 5
seat, Tina Calderone won
over Becky Erwin by a 55.5 3
percent to 44.47 percent
margin.
A half-penny sales tax
that would have helped
fund the school system's
flagging budget was killed
by a 49.24 percent to 50.76
percent vote.

City Charter changes
There won't be any more


speculation about who
takes office when a mayor
or councilperson leaves in
Oviedo, thanks to the pass-
ing of Charter Amendment
1 on Tuesday. The amend-
ment put into clearer
language how a mayor
or councilperson will be
selected after a resignation
or death.
If a vacancy occurs
with less than 6 months
left in a term, the council
will appoint an interim
member. If longer than 6
months, the city will hold
an election to fill the seat.
That amendment passed by
a wide 75 percent to 25 per-
cent margin.
Oviedo's mayor won't
have as much power as he
or she used to, after voters
chose to return the city's
government to an old style
last seen before Mayor Tom
Walters' term in 2004.
Before that time, the
City Council operated with
an appointed chairman
running meetings. During
Walters' tenure, that was
changed to have the mayor
preside over meetings. Now
it's back to a council chair-
man role again, thanks
to the passing of Charter
Amendment 2, which
passed by a 55.6 percent to
44.4 percent margin.
A less contentious
Amendment 3 clarified
how the city hires and fires
its city manager, and clari-
fied the manager's duties.
Thanks to it passing by a 77
percent to 23 percent mar-
gin, the Council will need
three votes to fire a man-
ager and four to hire one.
Passing by nearly as
high a margin at 76.4 per-
cent to 23.6 percent, vot-
ers approved Amendment
4 stating that the city must
provide a police and fire
department. Beforehand, it
was not required in the char-
ter. Due to recent controver-
sies about other Seminole
County cities consolidating
their fire departments with
the Seminole County, the
Charter Review Board pro-
posed the change.
Charter Amendment 5
was the only one in Oviedo
to fail, by a 41.9 percent
to 58.1 percent margin. It
would have allowed the city
to borrow funds in excess
of $5 million for self-sup-
porting electric revenue

bonds without requiring
voter approval.

Winter Springs
A land annexation charter
change narrowly lost in the
city by a 49.35 to 50.65 per-
cent margin.
A city code became an
official charter amendment
after voters approved a
change requiring mayoral
candidates reside within to
the city for at last a year
before they can run for
office, and Commission
candidates must reside
within their districts for at
least 6 months.
Terms of office will begin
at the next meeting after an
election rather than wait-
ing for December, now that
voters passed an amend-
ment by a 55.15 percent to
44.85 percent margin.
Voters handed the power
to appoint a commissioner
or mayor to the city with
a 67 percent to 33 percent
vote. In the event of a res-
ignation or other cause for
a vacant Commission seat,
the Commission will decide
who will get the new seat


and when they will get it if
a commissioner leaves dur-
ing a year in which they
were not up for re-election.
Voters refused to allow
the Commission to remove
the city clerk, manager
or attorney by a simple
majority, striking down an
amendment that would
remove the supermajority
requirement currently in
place. That failed by a 39.3
to 67.7 percent margin.
The Commission will
decide how much the
city clerk is paid though,
with the passing of an
amendment granting the
Commission that power by
a 74.8 percent to 25.2 per-
cent margin.
Emergency ordinanc-
es will also now be in the
Commission's repertoire
after a 67.5 percent to 32.5
percent vote. The ordinanc-
es could be enacted by the
Commission for a maxi-
mum of 60 days.
A complicated amend-
ment allowing the city to
adopt ordinances to regu-
late utility rates, appoint an
acting manager, use attor-

neys other than the city
attorney, and rewrite the
entire charter to be gender-
neutral passed by a 59.15
percent to 40.85 percent
margin.
The city may be more
business-friendly after vot-
ers passed an amendment
granting the city power to
give tax breaks to business-
es. That passed by a 52.8 to
47.2 percent margin.

Sanford
Sanford voters said no to
an amendment that would
allow new city managers
to live outside the city or
even outside the state after
they've been appointed by
the city. Currently the city
requires city managers be
residents of Sanford by the
time they take their posi-
tion with the city. That vote
failed by a 32.7 percent to
67.3 percent margin.
Voters approved a new
amendment that would
put the city in line with
Florida constitutional
Amendments 5 and 6, which
passed Tuesday night. Those
amendments governed the
shape of legislative districts
to avoid gerrymander-
ing. That city amendment
passed by a 62.4 percent
to 37.6 percent margin,
nearly the same margin as
Amendments 5 and 6.
The city also passed an
amendment requiring pro-
posed charter changes be
published in a newspaper
30 days before the election.
It passed by a 66 percent to
34 percent margin.

Five businesses, one home


PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK - THE VOICE
Counselors at Clark Street Counseling peek out of their offices inside a newly renovated building that split into five businesses to adapt to the economy.


KERRI ANNE RENZULLI
THE VOICE

When Ratcliff Properties
decided to divide the grey,
single office building on
Clark Street in Oviedo into
suites, they gave five busi-


nesses the space needed
to unleash their repressed
potential.
Unlike surrounding
shops who are downsizing
and hanging "Going out
of Business" sale signs in
their windows, the five call-


ing 870 Clark St. home are
experiencing a seemingly
counterintuitive growth in
a down market.
The building itself may
be the glue physically hold-
ing the disparate business-
es together, but it is their


shared concerns for their
clientele and an ambition
for growth that seems to be
leading their success, rather
than their geography.
"We're a really close
group of very friendly peo-
ple," said Mary Lou Boyle,


owner of Saving Face
Skincare Salon, one of the
five businesses. "We all work
together and refer clients
to each other if one of our
customers need their type

PAKISTAN I Musharraf seeks re-election


< continued from the front page
must win," Musharraf said.
Support from the crowd was
clearly shown as cheers shouted
across the room included "long
live Musharraf" from one audi-
ence member; others clapped and
praised his promises and accom-
plishments in Pakistan.
Musharraf, who served as the
10th president of Pakistan from
2001 to 2008 before resigning
under threat of impeachment,
elaborated on his accomplish-
ments in infrastructure, equality,
freedom of the press as well as his
mission to eradicate corruption
with reminders of the economic
growth he brought to the region
during his reign.
He was succeeded in 2008 by
Asif Ali Zardari, husband of assas-
sinated opposition leader Benazir
Bhutto, who was gunned down
less than two weeks before a pres-
idential election in which she was
to challenge Musharraf in 2007.
Since his resignation, Musharraf
has lived in London, but the pro-
western and American ally has
not forgotten about the struggles
of his homeland.
"Empowerment of women is
most important, empowerment
of minorities and liberty to the
media - this is the essence of
democracy, and this is what we
need to do," Musharraf said. "Every
Pakistani is equally important."
These sentiments were echoed
when he reminded the audience
that 33 percent of government
seats were appointed to women
during his diplomacy.
"The people of Pakistan will
come around, and they will see
the truth," Musharraf said.
He also said when the people
of the world see that they can save
Pakistan from their problems,
they can move them forward.
Musharraf made it clear he was


not perfect and apologized for his
past mistakes.
"Decision making is the most dif-
ficult thing in the world," he said.
"And at these difficult times, a leader
finds himself completely alone."
Musharrafs political advisor, Sher
Afgan Niazi, said Musharrafs big-
gest accomplishment was turning
Pakistan around, giving it respect,
dignity and hope.
"People want change, and they're
looking for another option," Niazi
said. "And Musharraf can provide
that."
A turbulent political climate in
Pakistan could prove a formida-
ble opponent on its own, regard-
less of Musharrafs opponents in
2013. Though Musharraf left under
political and popular pressure to
resign, his elected successor has
engendered even more political dis-
sent. Zardari, who has ruled since
2008, has been accused of corrup-
tion and castigated for touring to
raise campaign funding in August of
this year, while flooding in Pakistan
destroyed the homes of more than 1
million residents.
Musharraf, in officially announc-
ing his campaign for re-election,
said he hoped to change things for
the better in Pakistan.
It was change that rang loudly
in the hearts of the many support-
ers Saturday evening as they rose
to applaud the promise of a better
Pakistan.
"The unity of court and action
between the people, the military
and the bureaucracy... can eman-
cipate Pakistan," Musharraf said.
"They can take Pakistan out of the
troubles the country is facing."
A luncheon was also hosted earli-
er that day to welcome the arrival of
Musharraf to Florida, where he was
greeted with open arms, a house
full of support from many commu-
nity leaders and a dozen red roses
labeled "freedom" - a word on the
minds of many that day.

Duda Foods introduced
its new brainstorm of
red celery on Oct. 16 at
the Produce Marketing
Association's annual
Fresh Summit Trade
Show in Orlando. Later
in December, red celery
will make its consumer
premiere in select test
markets in the Northwest,
Southwest and West Coast.
We have to wait until June
for nationwide supermar-
kets to distribute the red
celery - can we wait that
long? I'm also thinking,
should I change the name
of my column to Between
the Red and Green Celery
Stalks? Just a thought.
I hope all survived
the witches, goblins,
Spiderman and the entire
trick-or-treaters gang, plus
the parties and activities
that went with our big
holiday last weekend. I
did, but then again, I was
in Leesburg with my two
sons and family. There
were many little monsters
knocking on my son's door.
We did take a few pictures
of the wee ones - they are

We all did our duty and
voted for the candidate of
our choice Tuesday, I hope.

November has swept in
with the rain we missed
in October, plus unusually
cold temperatures, giv-
ing us that brisk change of
season that some Florida
transplants secretly crave.

Computer classes
Speaking of secrets, have
you always wanted to learn
some computer basics?
It's never too late: basic
computer classes will be
held in November at the
Rural Heritage Center in
four evening sessions. For
a $50 donation, you can
take eight hours of instruc-
tion to learn how to use
e-mail and the Internet. To
register, call 407-792-0758
or have someone help you
e-mail at genevaschool-
house@gmail.com.

Decorations on a budget
That nip in the air may
get you thinking about


decorating for the holi-
days. Stick to your bud-
get by visiting the Thrift
House and Boutique at the
First Methodist Church,
which will be setting up a
Christmas room. For more
information, call 407-
493-4383 or stop by on
Wednesday and Saturday
from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The
Thrift House accepts dona-
tions and has fantastic
prices on an abundance of
clothing, accessories, kids'
items and house wares.

Yoga classes
Want to head off stress
before the holidays? Come
down to the Geneva
Community Center and
take advantage of the
Geneva Meditation Group
on Thursday from 7:30-
8:15 p.m. Learn how to
reduce your blood pressure
and stress, calm your mind
and improve your focus.


Donations are welcome
but not mandatory. If you
enjoy yoga or are curious
to try it, that class meets
from 6-7:15 p.m. Yoga class
costs $8 per class with no
contract and focuses on
hatha yoga with mixed
levels. Visit www.tree-
poseyoga.com or call Pete
or Emily for information
on both classes at 407-349-
0346.

Movie under the stars
Do your kids attend Geneva
Elementary? Do you want
to help support this five-
star, A-rated school? Come
out on Friday evening, Nov.
12 to the PTA Fall Festival
and Outdoor Movie Night
from 4:30-7:30 p.m. This
is a really fun event for
families with food, holiday
vendors and an outdoor
movie at 6:30 p.m. I went
last year, and it was great
to see teachers, adminis-
trators, parents and kids
visiting, laughing, playing
games and raising money
for the school. Don't for-
get that the Fall Scholastic
Book Fair will also be start-
ing soon.

Art classes and more
If you're creative and crafty


and thinking about making
holiday gifts for family and
friends, consider using our
own Rural Heritage Center
to help you out. A nice vari-
ety of classes and resources
are available, including
Open Art Studio with art-
ist Valerie Thomas (our
RHC executive director) on
Thursday mornings from
9 a.m. to noon. Bring your
own supplies or use some
at the center. Rub elbows
with and be inspired by
other artists. There is a $10
fee - $5 for seniors. Call
Valerie at 407-729-1449 or
e-mail artbyvalerie@yahoo.
con.
There are also classes
running on a regular basis,
including the art of stained
glass, polymer beads, begin-
ning woodworking, needle-
work groups and more,
so check out the Rural
Heritage Center website
for the schedule of current
and upcoming classes and
meetings at www.genev-
aschoolhouse.org or call
Valerie.

Officials answer to you
On a closing note, about
the election, I'll just say
that I hope you voted and
that you felt good that no


matter the results - if you
lean toward blue or red or
purple - you took part and
were engaged. Don't fall
into the trap, complain-
ing about the negative ads,
the signs, the mail and the
phone calls. That is just one
part of the political process.
The more important part
is that each of us decides
what is important, what we
want and don't want, and
that we do the research and
hard work to understand
the issues. We need to pay
attention to our elected
officials now more than
ever, not just in the run up
to Election Day. Hold them
accountable, listen to what
they say (and don't say) and
use the technology at our
fingertips to communicate
what we expect of them.

OVIEDO I Recount could decide Council seat by only a handful out of 10,000 votes


< continued from the front page

Seminole County Supervisor of
Elections Mike Ertel is already pre-
paring for a recount, a rarity in
Seminole County. Since becoming
the supervisor of elections in 2005,
he has never seen a recount in the
county.
"Orange County had a recount
at their primary election, and we
observed that ... having never done
this before, we've been working on
things by watching others," Ertel
said, noting that Seminole County
already has protocols in place for a
recount, but that he wanted to see
what worked best in nearby areas.
Tuesday night, the vote had
swung both directions as precincts
reported in, some favoring Drago,
some favoring Sladek. The top two
candidates combined still fell short
of 50 percent of the vote in the
widely contested race. The remain-
ing five candidates combined for
50.74 percent.
In third place was Rob Thrift
with 16.42 percent of the vote, fol-
lowed by Darrell Lopez with 10.43
percent, then Judith Dolores Smith
with 9.67 percent, Matthew C.
Schwartz with 8.23 percent and
Bob Pollack with 5.99 percent.


Both had chosen to stay home
on election night rather than hold
would-be victory parties at local
restaurants. By the end of the night,
neither was victorious.
Clicking away at his computer in
the living room of his 100-year-old
home at 7:30 p.m., Sladek watched
with a tense glare as the results
poured in.
"It's going to be close no matter
what," Sladek said, never daring to
predict an outcome aloud. A small
throng of supporters gathered to
offer encouragement whenever
the tide of a new precinct flowed
his way.
Drago was unavailable to com-
ment for this story.
How close it would be is some-
thing that no one could have pre-
dicted. As of the pre-recount tally,
only one other election in the city's
recent history had witnessed a mar-
gin of victory nearly as narrow - a
2005 vote in which then-incum-
bent Mayor Tom Walters hung onto
his seat by 18 votes. Due to a low
turnout, the margin of victory was
still 0.64 percent, or just beyond
the level that would trigger a man-
datory recount. Last night's council
vote is separated by just 0.14 per-
cent.


"It's tighter than a mason jar,"
Ertel said of the election.
As of Wednesday the provi-
sional ballots for the election still
remained uncounted, to be veri-
fied on Thursday after press time.
Those seemed unlikely to swing
the vote by a large margin, Ertel
said, as there would be a maximum
of 14 provisional ballots eligible
to be counted. In one the most
statistically unlikely scenarios, if
all provisional ballots were eligible


and voted for Sladek, the top two
candidates would be tied before
the recount.
A full recount is scheduled to
begin Monday at the Supervisor
of Elections Office, and could
conclude that day. If the margin
remains tighter than .25 percent
after the first recount, the office
will recount by hand.
"This proves that every vote real-
ly does count," Persampiere said.

November 5 - November 18. 2010 Page 7


The iconic image of the solitary
farmer on his tractor criss-crossing
the back 40 acres brings to mind a
stalwart character able to single-
handedly withstand the forces of
nature. Even if the farmer owns his
land, raised his seed and fertilized
the land with his herd's manure, he
still depends on the top of the food
chain to purchase and consume
his crop. He relies on the tractor
manufacturer for parts and service
for his equipment. His family is at


the house, providing love and sus-
tenance. All these associated peo-
ple confirm the fact that growing a
crop in the field is merely a single
step in the long process of raising a
crop of humans.
Growing a garden in the back-
yard confronts many of these
same principles even if we just
want to flavor up the tomato sauce
with a little homegrown basil.
My children have grown strong
and healthy eating an incredibly


diverse diet supplemented from
the land and labor of our home-
stead garden (even though the
dark forces of fast food frequently
appeared to have the upper hand).
I deluded myself while bringing
home the beans that my objec-
tives were accomplished. But until
those beans were consumed by my
family, let alone relished, were my
unintended goals finally achieved.
Trust me, there were plenty of
times that wonderful garden-fresh
produce was left to languish in the
vegetable drawer of the fridge.
Try counting the number of
people you are growing, not just
the ones actually eating your pro-
duce. If everyone economically
associated is included, your crop
of people may be a bit bigger than
imagined. From the person filling
seed packets, the cashier at the gar-
den center ringing up the supplies,
the writer providing suggestions,
to the property owner's associa-
tion president allowing a zoning
variance to remove a percentage of
lawn for a square foot garden - all
are ultimate beneficiaries of a food


production enterprise.
Where the plethora of people
really comes to mind are the posi-
tive associations made in the actu-
al efforts of growing the plants. In
my garden, the customers of my
pick-your-own business help in
reaping the harvest. The friends at
the garden club meetings impart
ideas, seeds and moral support.
Guests attending tours of my gar-
den spew plenty of feedback (good
and bad) all over the plants, sort
of like cerebral fertilizer. At public
speaking events, information flow
is always a two-way street (the best
way to learn a subject is to teach
it). Tally up all these humans, and
you've grown a significant crop!

BUSINESS I An eclectic mix of businesses in one office thrive in Oviedo


< continued from the page 3

each other grow."
Like a plant in a too-
small pot, four of the five
businesses were root-bound
and finding it impossible
to grow within their con-
fines. Their move to the
Oviedo Executive Center in
April provided them with
the larger pot necessary to
expand.
Oviedo Injury & Wellness
Center's new office is twice
the size of the old one,
allowing ample space for
more clients, exam rooms,
staff and their dream addi-
tions of a staff physical ther-
apist and x-ray machine.
"Our clientele was grow-
ing and Dr. (Martin) Ressler
knew he needed a more
spacious place, and this
office has the room needed
to expand and offer addi-


tional services," said
Jenna Weinhold,
Oviedo Injury &
Wellness Center marketing
coordinator.
Larry G. Howes' All State
Insurance Company used
the additional space in his
new location to acquire
another agency, bringing
the offices together under
one roof with space for
their files and employees
too.
Howes' wife, two sons
and son's mother-in-law
all work in the office now,
creating the family-friend-
ly feel Howes credits his
growth to.
"We're family-oriented,
and we try to treat our cus-
tomers like family," Howes
said. "In this economy, peo-
ple want to be treated well.
We sell a commodity, but
we know the customer val-
ues the service we put out."


Howes further draws on
the family feel by hosting
weekly networking events
to reach new clientele.
Ryan Law's rapid growth
forced them out of their old
offices downtown within
their first year of business.
The attorneys and coun-
selors there credit its rapid
growth to an ideal similar
to Howes' in that they also
stress the importance of
personal care.
"Our business model is
designed to be conducive
to the economy. The servic-
es we offer and the efficien-
cy with which we perform
them is what helps us to
grow," said Alycia L. Wood,
Ryan Law paralegal.
The economy is a stick-
ing point with them as they
hand out pamphlets whose
back covers say boldly:
"more experience, less
cost."


Clark Street Counseling
was able to gain the inde-
pendence they needed to
grow by striking out on
their own and moving to
their new office.
The independent group
of mental health profes-
sionals consists of five
counselors who help to
meet varying needs in a
single location, which has
enabled them to grow using
interoffice referrals.
For their patients suffer-
ing from anxiety disorders
or depression or relation-
ship issues, the calm quiet of
the office and the building's
seclusion from the road by
box hedges aids in giving
the offices a deep sense of
tranquility.
It is this stillness found
in each of the suites that
has helped Boyle enjoy her
fledgling business's growth.
Her European facials, nat-


ural manicures and pedi-
cures need the quiet and
she needs the success to
reaffirm her re-entry into
the world of beauty after
more than two decades
spent away.
When Stephen Ratcliff,
the owner of Ratcliff
Properties and property
manager for 870 Clark St.,
provided his tenants with
the keys to their custom-
ized spaces in the Oviedo
Executive Center, they
gained the home neces-
sary to support and foster
growth.
"I know the tenants love
it here," Ratcliffe said. "All
of them are doing well, and
I think the building defi-
nitely has something to do
with that. The tenants are
in a professional-looking,
new building, which broad-
casts an image of success."

Detour to success

Sanford student Caroline Senko didn't let dyslexia get in the way of winning a state soloist contest


TINA RUSSELL
GUEST REPORTER
When Sanford resident Caroline
Senko, 14, took the stage at the VSA
Young Soloist Competition, she felt
more than 10,000 people staring
back at her.
It reminded her of a rock concert,
and as she began to play her viola,
emotions bubbled up - would she
transpose the notes or get off beat?
Then her adrenaline kicked into
full gear.
She walked off the stage the win-
ner of the state competition pro-
duced by the State Organization of
Arts and Disability, or VSA.
But her win didn't come easy.
Caroline has visual and auditory
dyslexia.
Visual dyslexia affects the vision
of a person, where they see things
in reverse while auditory dyslexia
affects the letter and sound rela-
tionship within a word.
But Caroline said her dyslexia
isn't a crutch.
"I think of it as my roadblock,
because everyone is going to have
their roadblocks, so I just try to find
other ways to do stuff," she said. "I
call it my detour."
This detour is a mixture of deter-
mination, never giving up and con-
stantly self-checking herself. After
all, she's been playing the viola
since she was 8 years old.
At an early age, Caroline had
issues with the movement of the
bow. The bow requires up and down
movement while reading a piece of
music from left to right simultane-
ously. Through practice and con-
stant self-checking to make sure
the sharps and flats were correct,
her bowing problem disappeared
over time.
Another thing Caroline con-
stantly checks is to make sure
she's keeping the beat and rhythm

Sanford resident Caroline Senko, 14, won state at the VSA Young Soloist Competition. She shares how she overcomes her auditory and visual dyslexia.


while playing the viola. When she
is having issues with this, her viola
teacher, Dr. Jesus Alfonso, will have
her dance to the piece of music
to better understand the beat and
rhythm.
She'll also put a phone book
under her foot to get the rhythm,
and she will continue to play. If she
still cannot get it down, she will put
the phone book under the other
foot.
"It's because I'm not so mad at
myself, and I'm not so focused on
the piece," Caroline said. "I'm more
focused on what my foot is doing
that I'm actually getting it."
For other people with dyslexia
who want to pursue music, Caroline
has four recommendations: have
parents who will help with the
goal, have a really good professor


who thinks of creative ways to help
teach the music, be determined
and self-check yourself.
Caroline is one of four final-
ists to apply for the National VSA
Soloist Competition. To apply for
nationals, one must win states first.
She sent in her audition tape the
first week of November, and she is
waiting to hear back from them.
"We always felt she was very tal-
ented," said Paul Senko, Caroline's
father. "We felt she had a really
good shot at winning, and when it
came out she did win, we were very
pleased."
To prepare her for the com-
petition, Alfonso said the main
goal was to create confidence in
Caroline by first having her play
alone, then play for him and then
play for everyone.


"It didn't really surprise me that
she won," Alfonso said. "I am very
proud of her."
When asked about how it would
feel to go to nationals, Caroline
puts her hands over her face as if
she is trying to mask the excite-
ment coming from her voice.
"Oh my gosh, it's like mind bog-
gling," she said. "It's crazy because
to go there, I think I would feel so
accomplished."
Caroline doesn't plan to stop
playing the viola anytime soon. She
hopes to attend the Curtis Institute
and to one day, become a viola
player in a city orchestra. She also
wants to open her own viola studio
in addition to teaching music his-
tory at a college.

First United Methodist Church of Oviedo celebrates its 76th homecoming Sunday


KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS
THE VOICE
When Jessie Shaffer showed
up with pans of her legend-
ary chicken potpie and the
Kelsey brothers set up their
steaming pot of swamp cab-
bage, folks quickly lined up
for spoonfuls of heaven.
Aromas of these home-
made dishes linger in the
memories of First United
Methodist Church of
Oviedo members as the
church prepares for its 76th
Annual Homecoming event
on Sunday.
"It was always held across
the street, and we sat on
orange crates furnished, of
course, by Nelson & Co.,"
church member Linda Vail
said. "It was almost a city
event - not only a church
event - because a lot of
Baptists came, as well as
previous ministers and
friends."
Don Shaffer, FUMCO
membership secretary,
remembers his mom's pot-
pies and how Homecoming
was an opportunity to
invite members back who
had moved "as far away as
Orlando".
Reverend C.W. Mathison
began the tradition of
Homecoming in the 1930s
to honor the church's com-
munity mission and minis-
try. Despite the hardships
of the Great Depression,
World Wars and natural
disasters, Homecoming
has remained an unshak-
able tradition in the spirit
of the pioneers, entrepre-
neurs and visionaries who
founded the area, originally
known as the Lake Jesup
Settlement.
Homecoming begins
with a wide-open invita-
tion not only to current
members, but also to those
who have moved away and
the community. All are
invited to return 'home'
to a special service, which
begins with speakers such
as a Methodist bishop, an
esteemed former pastor and
a Methodist district super-
intendent, who will give a
keynote speech. This year's
speaker will be Dr. Wayne
Wiatt, East Central District


superintendent. The service
is followed by a community
dinner held outside on the
church grounds. Everyone
brings a large, covered dish
to share with the communi-
ty, and the church provides
the meat, drinks, tables and
chairs - no more orange
crates!

Deep roots
David Evans recalls how his
mother Clara Lee Wheeler
Evans (1917-2010) hon-
ored and contributed to the
history of her family, who
helped found Oviedo. She
was an active member of
the church and loved the
role of sharing the history
of it and Oviedo with each
class of new church mem-
bers. Her son David now car-
ries on that tradition. Her
grandparents James Hiram
and Laura Barnett Lee were
founding members of the
Oviedo Methodist Church
in 1873 with benefactor Dr.
Henry Foster, who provided
funding for the first church
building, which was named
Foster Chapel in his honor.
Families from Lake Jesup,
Lake Charm and Black
Hammock grew together in
faith and neighborly com-
mitment despite the hard-
ships of rural life.
Early church records


show that the young congre-
gation met in a brush arbor,
and the seven founders sat
on long boards balanced on
pine logs until their build-
ing was erected. Although
the name, structure and
location of the church has
changed over the past 137
years, its ministry and mis-
sion is unchanged.
As a young boy, Evans
enjoyed hearing the older
men share tales of fishing for
large mouth bass in Cuba.
"There are so many stories
that have been passed down
from generation to genera-
tion. It has made for a very
close family," Evans said.
"The closeness of the fami-
lies in Oviedo has been why
the church has successfully
fulfilled its missions local-
ly and internationally. We
have a strong heritage of
deep and abiding faith."
Assistant Pastor Brinda
LeBleu was born in Atlanta
and appreciates southern
traditions.
"There is an excitement
stirring about this event,"
LeBleu said. "Homecoming
is unique to this church
because it has such an
appreciation for its history
through so many genera-
tions."
Citrus, celery and steam-
boats shaped the Oviedo


community, but equally
important was the spiritual
community that bolstered
the fledgling settlement.
Welcome home, Oviedo.
You can almost smell Jim
Lee's coffee and Mrs. Slavik's
poppy seed cake.

Methodist Church of Oviedo

church records. Information

Knights stab Pirates

After a victory over East Carolina on Oct. 30, UCF prepares to take on Houston at 8 p.m. Saturday


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE
For the first time this sea-
son, the Knights are edging
their way into the Associ-
ated Press' Top-25 polling,
after a strong 6-2 start to
the football season. Effec-
tively ranked No. 33 in the
nation, the Knights' rising
star came courtesy of a wild
49-35 victory over East Car-
olina Saturday.
The win, which put the
Knights on top of Confer-
ence USA with a 4-0 con-
ference record, was a semi-
nal moment for the team
according to some players,
and one of their biggest in
team history, according to
others. The Knights had
never defeated the Pirates
before this season, having
lost in four straight match-
ups.
"It's probably our big-
gest win," UCF senior wide
receiver Brian Watters said.
"It's the biggest game of
my career and probably of
everyone's career on the
team now."


The Knights dominated
from the outset, scoring two
unanswered touchdowns
in the first quarter on two
passes from quarterback
Jeff Godfrey.
The freshman passer
would command the ball
the entire game, throwing
for 159 yards and rushing
for another 43.
On the ground is where
a pair of Knights shined,
with running back Ronnie
Weaver posting yet anoth-
er career high with 180
yards, averaging six yards
per carry en route to two
rushing TDs. Latavius Mur-
ray added another 47 yards
on the ground, picking up
three rushing TDs of his
own.
The Knights' defense
held ECU's running game to
only 111 yards, but allowed
a pass-happy Pirates offense
to pick up 310 yards in the
air. Defensive end Darius
Nail had a sack for 12 nega-
tive yards, plus three quar-
terback hurries.
The end result was a
Pirates offense that fell only


three yards short of equal-
ing UCF's total yardage, but
that was forced to punt
three times after key stops
when the Knights never
punted once.
Avoiding the punt
became the Knights' spe-
cialty on the day, as they
converted nine of 11 third
downs, and converted their
only fourth down attempt.
The Knights' only missed
scoring opportunity came
when Nick Cattoi missed a
37-yard field goal attempt.
Cattoi was flawless in his
seven extra point attempts.
Good field position also
helped the Knights, cour-
tesy of key returns from
Quincy McDuffie, Jamar
Newsome and Josh Rob-
inson, who combined for
151 return yards on just six
plays.
This weekend the
Knights play the team with
the second best record in
the conference, Houston.
The Cougars (5-3, 4-1) are
coming off a 56-17 rout of
Memphis. They kick off at 8
p.m. Saturday in Houston.

Hagerty quarterback Jeff Driskel threw for 188 yards and rushed for 106 yards on 18 carries.


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE
The Huskies went into last
Friday knowing they'd be
playing a team that had won
one game all season. They
came out bruised, blood-
ied, but narrow victors over
Evans by a score of 28-21.
Entering the game, the
Trojans had lost to five
straight opponents, includ-
ing a 62-6 blowout at the
hands of Dr. Phillips the
game before.
But on Oct. 29, they sud-
denly lit up with energy,
picking up the first touch-
down of the game and play-
ing a back-and-forth scor-
ing matchup that would
end on the last four minutes
of the game when the Hus-
kies came back to win it.
Huskies quarterback Jeff
Driskel again proved instru-
mental in the win, throw-
ing for 188 yards - 72 of
them to receiver Hunter
Boudreau - and rushing
for 106 yards on 18 carries.
Driskel would have a
hand in all of his team's
touchdowns, throwing in
for two touchdowns and
running for two more.
The win put the Huskies
up to 6-2 overall and 3-1
in the district. At 7:30 p.m.
Friday night they host the
winless Pine Ridge Panthers
(0-8, 0-4), fresh off their
biggest disappointment of


the season, a 21-20 loss to a
Spruce Creek team that had
pulled off only one win all
season.

Oviedo
Meanwhile the Lions are
roaring after a 42-12 trounc-
ing of Lake Howell.
Oviedo (6-2, 2-1) found
a star in receiver A.J. Coney,
who picked up 116 yards on
just two passes, one of them
ending in the end zone.
Seven Lions would score
in the blowout, helped out
by quarterback Sean Long's
165 yards in the air.
In spite of some missed
connections, Lake Howell
quarterback Michael McCoy
had a strong showing of
his own, throwing for 139
yards.
The Lions, undefeated
this season at home, will
host district rival Winter
Springs at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Winter Springs
The Bears, despite having
one of the weaker overall
records in the district at
5-3, have the strongest dis-
trict record at 3-0 heading
into their showdown with
Oviedo.
Two weeks ago, they
destroyed Lake Howell
57-34. After a bye week,
they're back on the field,
traveling for a 7:30 p.m.
kickoff on Friday.

Living history

Central Florida man recounts the time
he spent imprisoned during World War II


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER

It happened 65 years ago,
but Ben Griffin still remem-
bers every detail.
How the bullets glittered
and popped like sparklers
against the belly of the small
planes his enemies were fly-
ing.
The face of the first
- enemy he made bail out of
his failing plane.
And the terrible mis-
take he made on the day
his own plane went down
in Czechoslovakia during
World War II.
But he doesn't remem-
ber much of what he was
thinking that day, as his sin-
gle-engine plane landed in
a field, its propellers slow-
ing as they sliced through


earth. .
"I wasn't afraid - I didn't
really think," the 88-year-
old retired lieutenant colo-
nel said.

Sharing their story
Griffin, a Winter Park res-
ident, and three other
WWII POWs briefly shared
their stories with a hushed
crowd during Fantasy of
Flight's October Living
History Symposium. The
men discussed their most
vivid memories, from the
honor and eagerness they
felt to be sent into com-
bat, to the courage it took
to get them through cap-
tivity. One described his
role in The Great Escape,
another the help the French
Underground provided
him. One more held back


tears as he described how
he watched D-Day happen
from his airplane.
"It still amazes me after
all these years - they are
still emotional, it's just as
real," said Bob Butchar, who
brought his son to the sym-
posium with a home school
group.
Everyone in the crowd,
including a few younger
children, seemed to recog-
nize the value in being able
to hear history from people
who experienced it first-
hand.
"This is true, unfiltered
history" said Stephanie
Conner, who organized the
event. "You're hearing it
from the people who actu-
ally made history."

The Urban Institute has released a
report that looks at work and retire-
ment patterns over the last 30 years.
More than 40 percent of men born
from 1943 to 1947 did not retire by
age 65, compared with only 20 per-
cent of those born from 1933 to 1937.


Men and women born from 1933 to
1937 were much more likely than
those born 20 years earlier to move
to part-time work at older ages and
return to work after retiring instead of
following the traditional route of retir-
ing only once directly from full-time
employment. Visit www.urban.org/

Confuse About


Theywere then passed along
to many different soldiers,
and were taken by train, foot
and truck to a prison camp
in Germany. The ordeal last-
ed a month. There wasn't
much food, and while on
the road, Griffin remem-
bered the black bread they
served him in the begin-
ning, which was made with
sawdust and tasted like saw-
dust. Now that sounded like
"chocolate cake."
"When you're used to
eating as much as you want,
and then you have nothing
to eat, you can get pretty
hungry."
Though the hunger
couldn't be ignored, or the
guns, or the constant threat
to his life, Griffin said he
never thought about dying.
"I didn't do a whole lot of
thinking or feeling," he said.
"Everyone was numb."

Coming home
He didn't even have much
reaction to the day he was
rescued. General George S.
Patton himself rode up in a
Jeep, one hand on the edge
of the windshield, the other
on his two ivory-handled
guns, and announced their
freedom.
"He said, Well you boys
can go home now,'" Griffin
recalled.
And then it didn't hit
him, or anyone else. Griffin
said there wasn't cheering
or crying. But he did have
something to come home
to - a fiance he'd proposed
to the previous summer.
Because of the war they
were apart much of their
relationship - he proposed
over the phone - but they
wrote each other letters
every day.
"I still have every one of
them," Marian Griffin said.
They have three sons,
two grandchildren who
are pilots, and a grandson
at Winter Park High School
aspiring to be a pilot, too,
just like his grandfather.

The Affordable Care Act: A
good deal for seniors
- and everyone else
Let's talk about what the
Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act really
does for seniors.
The new law does not
cut Medicare's guaranteed
benefits; it improves them.
Before the law was passed,
Those with Medicare pre-
scription drug coverage
faced a growing gap (the
"doughnut hole") that left
them vulnerable to thou-
sands of dollars in out-of-
pocket drug costs. This year,
people in the doughnut
hole received a $250 rebate
toward the costs of their
drugs. Starting in 2011, the
gap will gradually close,
saving seniors money and
helping them get the drugs
they need.
Preventive care is also
improved. In 2011, all
Medicare deductibles and
co-insurance are eliminat-
ed for preventive services
like mammograms and
colorectal screenings. And
for the first time, Medicare
will begin covering a free
annual physical.
States have new options


to help people get care in
their homes rather than
being forced to move to
a nursing home as their
health declines. The new
law also increases federal
funding for adult protec-
tive services, which serve
abused, neglected, or
exploited seniors. And it
boosts support for state
Long-Term Care Ombuds-
man programs, which look
out for the rights of nursing
home residents and their
families.

So, how are these
improvements paid for?
People with incomes over
$200,000 a year ($250,000
a year for couples) will pay
more in Medicare payroll
taxes. Medicare spending
will grow more slowly in
some areas over the next 10
years, but it will still grow
nearly 6 percent a year. The
law targets wasteful ser-
vices - like doctors order-
ing the same test twice. It
provides more resources
to tackle fraud and abuse
- like beneficiaries receiv-
ing wheelchairs they never
ordered and don't need.
These sensible changes


help keep Medicare fiscally
sound for an additional 12
years, until 2029.

What about Medicare
Advantage?
These private plans were
supposed to provide care
more efficiently and at
higher quality than the
original Medicare program.
But in fact they have cost
hundreds of billions of
dollars more than original
Medicare, while showing
no consistent improve-
ments in quality. Over the
next few years, these plans
will be put on a level play-
ing field with the original
Medicare program and
the excess payments to
these plans will gradually
be ratcheted down - with
bonus payments for those
that provide high-quality
care.
The Affordable Care Act
is not perfect - no law
ever is. But it is the most
significant improvement
in health security in our
nation's history. Undoing
the law would be a tragic
mistake.

Executive Director of Families USA
